    This vineyard series is stunning. And you capture it in different mediums, too.

    Are there drawings that go with these, or do you paint directly over them?

    Glad you like them 🙂

    Yes these are supported by drawings. First of all, I nearly always do a thumbnail composition sketch in my A5 sketch-pad.

    For watercolour plein air – where the risks of failure are very high, well at least for me – I sketch in the composition first using a 2H pencil.

    For oils, I never use a pencil. Mostly I start off using a raw sienna sketchy type of drawing, outlining the compostion but try & get the major colour theme down in paint as soon as possible. Sometimes even before the drawing of the compostion.
